Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it.
Until he meets Anna Whitt—sweet, smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she has a certain power over him, one that makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.
Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives as the influencers of sin, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the demons’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.
Sensual and swoon worthy, this companion volume to the acclaimed Sweet Evil series from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, told from the perspective of the irresistibly sexy and mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into his struggle, his intense connection to Anna, and most of all, the true emotions that drive him.
Sweet Temptation will encompass the entire trilogy in a condensed version, beginning with Kai's life before he met Anna, and taking readers through the epilogue of Sweet Reckoning. Sweet Temptation is a companion novel, not meant to be a stand alone story. It will definitely be a richer experience for those who have read the original trilogy.
GAH! I don’t even know where to start. There is so much to tell! The FEELS for the book is IMMENSE. I want to shove my face in this book so hard that I will fall into the story.
Plot: Alright, lets be real. This book is amazing. The reason why I loved it so much was just the character alone, Kaidan. His thoughts, his motives, his feelings, his everything had me drooling like a high school girl. He is a character that just has a way of capturing the reader. The plot went through all three of the Sweet series books so if you have not read them, I suggest you stop reading and go read it. The book is broken down into three sections and reader gets to see what Kaidan’s thoughts/feeling were throughout the series. I like that even though it technically not a story, it still flows well for me. Once I open this story there was no turning back for me.
Relationships/Friendships: One aspect of the story is seeing the friendships/relationships between the other Nephilim. I like to see them work together and over come their desires. Despite what they grew up with, they learned to trust and work together.
Ending: Well the ending is just perfect. Beautifully done and even made me tear up. And too be honest, I don’t want it to end. I wish I can see more of Anna/Kaidan. Their story is awesome. I do plan on re-reaing it just cause of the feels it gives me.
I love this book so much. Please go out and read it. The series it amazing. It’s something you don’t want to miss out.
